Review: Hakkasan

Place: Hakkasan
Location: 110 - 2188 No.5 Rd, Richmond
Website: http://www.hakkasan.ca/

Food: Went there for their lunch. Great offerings for lunch specials during the day. They have an "eel burger" special which consists of a really interesting "burger" done with eel and the bun made with Chinese "man tou". I also had a curry pork cutlet rice dish and that once again was really well prepared. The pork was done just right and al dente with the curry sauce complementing the dish really well.

Dessert: Fusion style offerings. Geared more towards traditional Chinese desserts. Very light creme brulee.

Service: Sweet CBC-looking girl served our table. Very nice, and spoke accented Cantonese. Nothing over the top but generally well serviced during the meal.

Atmosphere: Can't say too much about where it's located. I mean, it's on No.5 beside Bridgeport. Inside, however, is totally a different place! You can check out their gallery in the website I posted above.

Overall: I'd highly recommend this place for something different to try out. Their food is well prepared and done in a way that usual Cantonese style cooking does not offer in those big "seafood restaurants". Pricings are close to those places, but I'd much rather pay that price to eat at Hakkasan than to eat at those big "seafood restaurants" (i.e. Sun Sui Wah). They also offer "tasting menus". Will probably head back there one day to try those out.

I'd give this place 3.5/5 stars

I go there quite often for lunch as I work close by, and my Gym is just across the street! I've also been there for dinner twice. Great food...good service. If you like different dining experiences give it a shot! Lunch is fairly responsibly priced...dinner is a bit fancier, but still worth a try!

at dinner, it's a little overpriced for what you get imo, but it's a nice place and the service is good.

dinner is very over priced.
they do have some unique things. i've been there many many times for lunch. it's more on a pricy side but it's still doable. i would rate it 8/10 for lunch.

they are very very nice and professional so it's good to see.
their demographics / target audience are for people like me who have lot of customers aroudn that area but can't take customers to burger king / starbucks.

it's location location location.

I wouldn't say 'no where' lol...but it is an off spot...the plus here is there is TONs of parking, and is only about a 5 minute drive away from 3rd strip when theres not too heavy traffic. I just came back from having lunch there with 10 other people

Yea, their service is great...I personally don't think their lunch is over priced one bit. If you go to Boston Pizza...you are looking at around the $20 mark for lunch if you have a entree and drink after tip...here you get a lunch special for $9 with soup and entree...so you still have room to order another dish before coming close to BP price (negating pasta tuesdays lol)

I have never heard anyone refer to a meat as al dente lol. Usually only used for pasta, rice, beans, and sometimes vegetables.

They picked that location to target anyone that wants to have a decent lunch without having to drive all the way to # 3 road. My customers from # 8road in richmond all the way to # 5 road are so happy to have a decent place to eat that's not catcus club etc.

I have been there 10+ times and lunch is always very good for their lunch combo.

I really enjoyed Hakkasan. Went with my family, we ordered the set menu, and it came with quite a lot of food! The atmosphere was nice and modern, the staff were friendly. And the food was really good! Overall it was a pretty good dinner and it was quite a change from the usual chinese food.

Haven't been back any other time, but probably gonna try the lunch sometime since everyone's raving about it.

I was just about to post a review of this!!!

I ate the B Dinner Menu with my girlfriend few days ago...

Including a drink each and tips of tax... it came up to $180 for the two of us

The best 2 dishes was the Curried stuffed Whelk.. and the Kobe beef

They were simply amazing! Also the Lava cake was done JUST RIGHT!! It was really good


All together the meal was amazing, but $180 seems really steep but will go back again

also when the bill came, they gave us 2 coupons for Saturday afternoon Lunch good for 10% off

Cheers!

Finally got to try it today. Had the 8 course tasting menu for $39.99/person (have to order one day in advance). Also added the fresh uni fried rice and wok kobe beef. Overall was very impressed with the food and service! Would definitely go again.
